1. Where has this book been challenged/banned? (1-2 sentences)
2. Why has it been challenged/banned?
3. How does the book’s author feel about censorship of his/her book and/or of books in
general? (NOTE: Include direct quotations—statements made by the author—for this question
and place them in “quotation marks”)
4. Create a Works Cited List for your questions (do after you finish all of your research):
QUESTIONS FOR THE IMAGE SPECIALIST:
* REMEMBER: List the URL for each image directly under that image.
**NOTE: When using Google images, make sure you capture the correct URL.
To do this, click on the “Website for this image” link to the right of the picture.
DO NOT use a URL that begins with www.google.com/images . . .
1. Search Google Images (images.google.com) to find ten (10) relevant still images (photos
and/or clip art) to go along with the information gathered by the other group members.
2. Make sure the images are of good size and quality. After you search a keyword in Google
Images, scroll down and select Medium or Large (below where it says “Any Size”). In general,
the larger the number (ex: 560 X 780), the better the quality of the picture.
3. Save each image in Jpeg format:
A. Click on Full Size Image to the right of the picture.
B. With your mouse on the picture, right-click.
C. Choose Save Image As from the choices.
